I just got done watching the film “Stephen King’s the Mist” which was written and directed by Frank Darabont, I can tell you right now, that “The Mist” is possibly one of the worst movies I ever seen. It was downright horrible. Bad acting, bad directing, bad writing by Darabont, just an all out terrible movie that I’m not gonna review it. What’s worse about the movie is the ending to the movie version of “The Mist”. I will not talk about the ending since I don’t want to spoil anything. “The Mist” was crap crap crap. I don’t see how this film is getting good reviews by critics and the fans. The movie was awful. King didn’t write the script/direct “The Mist” Darabont did I know, but Darabont did work closely with King for this movie just like Darabont did with “The Green Mile”, and “The Shawshank Redemption”, those two movies were better than “The Mist”.
I used to admire Stephen King’s novels back in the 80’s and early 90’s but his new work hasn’t been that great. I am currently reading Stephen King’s new novel “Duma Key” and it’s hard to get into, I’m not getting into that story, it’s boring to read. King’s work keeps getting lamer and lamer. I believe he really has lost it since his accident when he got hit by a van years back. His writing was great before then, his writing is horrible now.
He can’t come out with any good “movies” or “books” anymore. His past work with books like “The Stand”, “It”, “The Shining”, “Pet Sematary”, “The Talisman”, “Needful Things”, “The Dark Half”, “Christine”, “The Tommyknockers”, the Dark Tower series, etc. They were all amazing and mind blowing stories.
Hollywood can’t make good movies for him anymore as well. Not even his new TV mini series movies are good anymore. COME ON STEPHEN! Come out with some decent work so we can all worship the writer we all once loved back in the good old days.
Stephen King used to be one of my big heros back in the old days but I’m losing interest in him. One of his new books “Lisey’s Story” was the only good new novel he put out. “Lisey’s Story” was amazing but his other new stuff is trash.
The problem is, Stephen has been staying away from the horror genre lately. He’s been writing more serious stuff. If he gets back to writing true “horror” again, he’ll get all his old fans back. We need the real Stephen King back, where’s the “master of horror” that he once was?
